Summary: wow. my built in wifi was terrible. this is great for old computers with old technology 2.0 usb and not the new 3.0. My old computer is still amazing. I was blown away by this little adapter. I cant believe how fast it is. went from getting only 10 to 30 mbps to now over 200 mbps. I can watch 1080p movies on my network from my other computer and the internet is as fast as if it was connected on the wire.
Summary: This is a fast wireless adapter and I haven't had any problems with it. My son plays games and we can't even notice any lag. With the new wireless a/c band starting up, when I switch my router to it, I'm definitely going to buy a TRENDnet adapter.
Summary: Some reviews here mention the short cable included and that it is difficult to install. I'm running Windows 7 64-bit and Windows had no trouble finding and installing the driver. Plugged in the cable (the one included here is probably about 36 inches so it is more than adequate) installed the driver and it was done. The connection and speed are constant. I am most impressed with this.
Summary: Best USB adapter we have tried. I like that it doesn't have to stick out of the USB port and it is fast and reliable as advertised. We use Trendnet products exclusively for all thing wireless.
Summary: This little item is super, my Internal Network card in my NEW Desktop could not see the 5ghz band from 12 feet and two Sheetrock walls. I purchase this on a chance and it sees the band with no problem, is simple to program and add security etc. I have 5 bars and have been able to use the 5ghz with no problems at all and I have also used the 2.4ghz. This works without flaws with my Dual Band TP-Link Modem Router and now I am a Happy Camper.
Summary: Got this to connect to a dual-band router on the 5GHz band so I can stream from my HDHomeRun tuner. It installed and connected easily, and transfer rates are high enough to display the HD signal. I didn't give it 5 stars because the speed doesn't seem to stay consistent, but it does typically stay high enough for my use.
Summary: When I first bought it, it connected at 450mbps, and I have only seen it in the 300's once. Other than that always 450mbps. But the problem is the ping. When I play world of tanks, my ping is 999ms, and it can go down to the 800's. I have a medialink adapter which says it has speeds up to 150mbps, but the highest it has ever connected is 72mbps, but it has pings in the 20-40ms range.
Summary: I bought this for my son's computer which is in a room away from our router. His computer did not have wireless capability installed, so this fixed the problem perfectly. It's small and works exactly as it should. Well worth the price.
